Who We Serve
We are here to serve all adults in Southern Colorado who have a mental health or a substance use condition, or who know and care about someone with such a condition (such as family, other supporters and community organizations).
If you want to talk informally about mental health or substance issues without concerns about confidentiality or stigmatization, we are the place for you. Maybe you are wondering if you have a clinical depression or if your anxiety is ‘normal.’ Maybe you are having thoughts that disturb you, but don’t want to talk with your doctor about them. We welcome you to visit with one of our peer specialists.
What We Provide
The Friendly Harbor Community Center actively works to counter the effects of stigma by supporting recovery of its members, and speaking to and collaborating with family members, supporters of those with a mental condition, organizations such as Pueblo County Department of Social Services, Probation Department, Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo and Health Solutions mental health center, and District Court Judges, Pueblo County citizens at large, and others.
The Friendly Harbor provides Peer Recovery Coaching by trained peer specialists with lived experience and recovery. Our Peer Recovery Coaches offer a non-judgmental ear, confidential problem-solving discussions, and emotional support as clients tackle difficult issues.
56% of American adults with a mental illness do not receive treatment.
